Both our kids love going to tractor pulls to cheer on our friend’s tractor “The 100 Yard Dash“. So last summer Ms M and I were trying to come up with a theme for her 5th birthday. She wanted another dinosaur birthday. But I really wanted to do something new.
“Mom! What about a tractor pull party?!!!!!”
There are tons of ideas out there for a tractor party (mostly John Deere) and tons of ideas for farm themed parties. But not a lot for a tractor PULL party. But, hey (not hay), we can do it right?!
The invitation was a lot of fun to put together. I used the County Life Cricut cartridge to make the barn and the tractor. I found a great striped paper that made me think of barn wood.
And I think it’s so fun to open the barn to read the rest of the invitation.
The outside text:
Jump in your tractor
and get in gear
XXXX Is turning
FIVE this year.
The inside of the invitation:
Plow on over for some birthday fun!
Planting time will be on Day, Month Date, Time

Um, ok. So that wasn’t very tractor pull-ish, and much more general farm-ish. But it was still tractor-y right? Well, maybe I can get the decorations to be more tractor pull-ish.
